Fall of the Wall of Silence: More on Pope Francis and Reports of a 'Gay Lobby' in the Roman Curia Comments

'The problem of the gay lobby in the Vatican is important, but marginal," he explains. "The true challenge of the Pontiff is the heresy of homosexuality, what I call the 'homoheresy, that is, the rejection of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church on homosexuality, whose defenders are in favor of priesthood for gays. The Holy Father must combat this heresy that has spread throughout the Church.' (Fr. Dariusz Oko) Continue Reading

    I am so thankful that the Holy Spirit has empowered Pope Francis to speak the truth about to corruption of the Church by the spirit of homosexualism. That his candor will bring condemnation from the world is no surprise. A far greater condemnation awaits all of us if we should deny God's revealed truth about human sexuality and lead others into heresy.

    In the Gospel reading for today, our Lord Jesus addresses the sins of adultery and divorce. If the Lord is so clear in condemning these heterosexual sins, how can anyone pretend that He is indifferent to homosexual sins, which not only abuse human sexual powers but actually deny the very nature of human maleness and femaleness according to God's creative plan?

    As Catholics, let us never make the mistake of conflating a person's true identity as a creation of God with his or her sinful actions -- including those in the area of sexual behaviour. A good start would be to love our neighbours enough to see beyond the false labels of LGBT mythology and recognize people as they truly are, without these sexual masks. There is no love without truth.

    All glory and honour to our Lord Jesus Christ!

    The Pope has spoken of sins of speech as slapping Jesus...so I do not think he is speaking loosely in his private conversations, or extemporaneous speeches. // It is significant that this article uses "omerta" to refer to the wall of silence. It is a Mafia term, a virtue to them. So I think the term "gay lobby" needs to be changed to "gay mafia." Pope Francis is already 76 and so must act fast and forcefully, which he is doing at breathtaking speed. I think you are going to see an earthshaking, or Church shaking, direct order come down from Francis soon, on this very topic. The recent worldwide simultaneous Eucharistic adoration was as much a direct test of obedience for the bishops, as it was an act of love for the Body and Blood of Christ. The bishops were even required to file a follow-up report on the event. So, when the Pope said "JUMP", he wants to know who did, and how high. Since the Pope has direct jurisdiction over every diocese...he can...and I predict he will...make an edict that applies to homosexual priests and seminarians. Imagine a Motu Proprio that says: TAKE THIS PSYCHOLOGICAL TEST...and if you profile out as gay, you are outta here!

    I must admit, Deacon Keith, that I am concerned. First, Cardinal Bergoglio, before he became Pope Francis, did seek a middle ground when dealing with the secular forces in Argentina in regards to homosexual marriage. It is said that the good cardinal was willing to accept sodomitical unions in exchange for protecting traditional marriage. Yet this position, which was that of Obama in 2008, is directly against a document released just a few years ago by the SCDF in Rome which condemned the notion of civil unions for gays. Furthermore, Pope Francis must be much more careful with his remarks whether in preaching at Mass or in these private meetings. His comments on atheism and these comments clearly demonstrate that he needs prepared texts for it is not he that is speaking but Peter through him.

    The homoheresy that has infiltrated the Church is a fundamental corruption. It has to be exposed and extinguished. I hope the light of the Holy Spirit and the authority of the Chair of St. Peter will have the wound healed soon.

    Don't understand ... are you confirming that these are the words of Papa or not? Has he confirmed these words his? Can he?
    If you cannot confirm that these are his words, I think you have done something wrong at the beginning of your article for you seem to treat the rumour as truth.
    If you can, I would really like to know...
    Other than this exception, the article offers much to ponder and work upon. Thanks.
    Poor Holy Father, but woe to those who ever use his words and misconstrue his ideas for selfish gain.
